This is democracy?
We live in a democracy, right? Not so much. See this article, where Wall Street banks are literally blackmailing the Congressional regressives. If they actually consider a bill for a bank tax then the money changers will pull their campaign contributions. And the regressives will of course cave, for that money is their power, which is why they're in office, not for 'the people.' Unless by people we mean the very rich people, who tell them what to do and they do it. Also note that regressives here include those corporate Democrats, part of the same ilk.
